> i got this post from Los Angeles IMC
BLAC BLOC ‚?? THE DAY THE NEW WAR ON IRAQ STARTS: Anti-war groups have 
called for a protest the day the new US war on Iraq begins. The 
protest will meet at 5pm the day the war starts in the following 
locations: 
ORANGE COUNTY: Bristol & Anton, Santa Ana CA (take the 405 and exit BRISTOL) 
LOS ANGELES: Westwood Federal Building (11000 WILSHIRE BLVD) 
RECONVERGENCE POINT: We are calling on all people who missed the original 5pm 
meeting point, or who just want to see the resistance continue in the street 
to meet at the next day at 12:00 PM (noon) against at the following 
locations: 
ORANGE COUNTY: Bristol & Anton, Santa Ana CA (take the 405 and exit BRISTOL) 
LOS ANGELES: Westwood Federal Building (11000 WILSHIRE BLVD) 
EMERGENCY ACTION FOR ORANGE COUNTY & LOS ANGELES WHEN THE U.S ATTACKS 
ANTI-WAR ACTION CALLOUT 
BRING THE WAR HOME (THE DAY THEIR WAR STARTS) 
A CALL FOR BLAC BLOCKS IN ORANGE COUNTY & LOS ANGELES 
In Afghanistan, the US military has killed thousands of people. The US spends 
billions funding genocidal policies against the Palestinian people. In 
Colombia, the US is escalating a civil war in which thousands of labor 
activists and peasants have been murdered. In Iraq, economic sanctions and 
radioactive weaponry have killed hundreds of thousands in the decade since 
the last war. The US ‚??War on Terror‚?? keeps expanding, threatening millions 
around the world. This is not a war between the people of the US and the 
people of the world. It is capitalism‚??a war on the poor. Investors in US oil 
companies will get a new pipeline through Afghanistan and increased access to 
the Iraq‚??s oil reserves (second only to Saudi Arabia). The weapons 
manufacturers will get new contracts and the US politicians 
will have an excuse to increase their power. Meanwhile, the poor and working 
people of America will definitely not be better off. 
We continue to live in a world of unemployment and minimum wage jobs, of 
racism and harassment, of surveillance and prisons, of impossible rents and 
evictions‚??a world not built for us, but on top of us. The brutal displays of 
the police in Oakland or L.A. bring to mind images of the Israeli Army in 
occupied Palestine. The thousands of Arab and South Asian desaparecidos in 
the US since September 11th recall the US-supported fascist regimes of Latin 
America. Even the foot soldiers the government uses to expand its empire will 
come home, as they did in the last Iraq war, with diseases from depleted 
Uranium ammunition. 
For us, the poor and working people living in the US, the war is not in Iraq, 
Palestine, Afghanistan or Colombia. It is right here at 
home, against the rich. 
The growing anti-war movement has called a number of demonstrations in the 
upcoming weeks and months. We will be there in solidarity. But we are worried 
that our protests have become nothing more than parades. Protest isn‚??t 
protest if it doesn‚??t threaten the established order or physically disrupt 
the functioning of the war machine. 
So let‚??s use our collective power to change things directly. Wear 
black in mourning for the victims of capitalism, racism, state 
violence. Let‚??s stick together and watch each other‚??s backs. Let‚??s 
fight back. 
Join us for a creative rampage. 
LOOK FOR THE BIG BLACK ‚??ANTI-WAR ACTION‚?? FLAGS
